Riders that meet certain criteria can enter the category at 15 years of age.
Motorcycling Australia (MA) will introduce an age reduction to enter the Supersport 600 category in 2019, enabling riders of 15 years of age eligible to contest the division if they meet certain criteria.
Similar to the endorsement for 13-year-olds to step into the Supersport 300 class, the new ruling has been passed to allow endorsements to be made available for those competitors who warrant being permitted graduate to the Supersport 300 class into the Supersport 600 class.
For each application certain requirements will need to be met and considered, which are outlined in the 2019 Manual of Motorcycle Sport, effective 1 January 2019.
The strategy is to encourage a sustainable and more accessible progression plan, where junior competitors can develop their skills at an early age through the respective classes available before contesting a club, state or national championship on a superbike.
